First Look: Rock River Arms Fred Eichler Series Light Predator2L
Rock River Arms is coming out with a new rifle specifically designed for predator hunting, dubbed the Fred Eichler Series Light Predator2L, which features a lightweight, carbon fiber handguard.
The new Fred Eichler Series (FES) Light Predator2L rifle features with a carbon fiber handguard that reduces overall weight and incorporates the popular and unique coyote paw prints that are found on all Fred Eichler Series handguards. The rifle incorporates a .223 Wylde Chamber suitable for use for both 5.56 mm & .223 Remington ammunition. The rifle has 16-inch long, lightweight fluted stainless-steel barrel with a 1:8-inch twist for consistent accuracy at long ranges and has been cryogenically treated and bead blasted for a no glare, professional finish.
The FES Light Predator2L rifle includes a special RRA Fred Eichler Series Brake that helps control muzzle lift and reduces muzzle flash. The RRA two-stage match trigger provides a smooth trigger pull. This rifle is built for serious predator hunters and for those seeking a precision rifle capable of 1 MOA, straight from the factory. Also included with this new predator rifle is a Hogue pistol grip, RRA Operator CAR buttstock, BCM Gunfighter medium charging handle, hard case and lifetime warranty.
